This year's #winter was special, not because there were sudden rain showers and random Storms but because there was some Tufaan(stormy) sightings of Birds in Mumbai that were Rare to this region. One such sighting was of Water Rail, a migratory species not so common in Maharashtra but which managed to show up in Wetlands of Kopar, near Dombivli, Maharashtra. @wetlands_lac @_urbanbirds_ @birdphotographyindia @indianbirds @pocket_birds #indianbirds #wildlifeofIndia #wildlifeofMaharashtra #dombivli #wetlandbirds #waterbirds #Rail #canonindia #BOTR
Waterbirds are swimming along the Sarıkum Lake, near City of Sinop in a lazy day of autumn where a nuclear power plant is being planned to build in the near future.Locals are very anxious about negative effects over the habitat of this natural preserving area / Su kuşları, Sinop şehri yakınlarında yer alan Sarıkum Gölünde, dingin bir sonbahar gününde sakince yüzüyor.Doğal koruma alanı statüsündeki bu göle, yakın gelecekte nükleer santral yapılmasının planlanmış olması ve bunun habitat üzerinde yaratacağı olumsuz etkiler, yöre halkını endişelendiriyor... #turkey #sinop #sarıkumgölü #sarıkumsinop #waterbird #waterbirds #sinopnükleeristemiyor #sinopnukleeristemiyor #sarikumlake #againstnuclearenergy #turkshutter #traveler #travelers #yolcu #seyyah #composition #hdr_turkey #photooftheday #hurriyetseyahat #manzara #landscape #landscapephotography #shutterstock #turkinstagram #turkobjektif #liveforthestory #natgeoturkiye #natgeotvturkiye #ig_yapistir #kesfetmekicinbak

My #Sunday #morning #run twice around #herdsmanlake #strava didn’t work proper on the first 10 min???? Tracked only time, not km or pace. Weird. #beautiful to see all these different #waterbirds , but sad to know, that only a few kilometres away over 40.000 of their brothers and sisters get murdered every week for human greed 💔. Why is it so different?? I would get fined, if I do harm to these water birds. On the other hand people get paid to kill #chicken! Their #suffering and #fear is the same. #loveallanimals #allanimalsmatter #peacebeginsonyourplate #runningwithdogs #veganrunner #runfortheanimals #veganislife #veganislove #veganforlife
It isn't always about knowing how to click a #photograph. It's about understanding when to press that button. First, recognize #flight patterns in #birds. There is a certain rhythm to their movement. Even, to their inconsistencies. Study it before obsessing about taking a good photograph. Then, get used to following a rapidly moving target. Practise with the birds in your neighborhood - the crows, mynahs, rock pigeons etc. Everything happens within 0.5 - 1 second. Unless you strive to react instinctively, you will have to rely on luck each and every time. There is also the option of learning the technical aspects of being a good #photographer, but I can't really help you there. #BlackHeadedIbis #waterbirds #nuts_about_birds #bird_brilliance #birds #birdsofinstagram #bird photography #birdstagram #birding #birds🐦 #birdsofindiansubcontinent #birdsofindia #photography #photo #photos #naturephotography #Chennai #chennaidiaries #southindia #incredibleindia
The #AsianOpenbill is one of those birds that doesn't attract much attention. Their grayish plumage and perfectly-uneven beaks bear neither bright colors nor any aberrations that stand out. I have been ignoring this bird for years. I haven't taken many photographs of it. So, I don't have any special stories about it. But today, it dawned on me that while in flight - #AsianOpenbills look magnificent. The duty, I suppose, is in the eyes of the beholder too. #AsianOpenbill #waterbirds #nuts_about_birds #bird_brilliance #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #birdstagram #birding #birds🐦 #birdsofindiansubcontinent #birdsofindia #photography #photo #photos #naturephotography #Chennai #chennaidiaries #southindia #incredibleindia

Musk Duck (male) - Australia's weirdest looking duck! #lakemonger #ducks #muskduck #ausbirds #birdsofaustralia #waterbirds
"The Bittern Stance" Note that the Bittern's eyes are placed in such a way that when it holds its head vertically, it switches to binocular vision. It will stay this way till a threat has passed and while it sits among the Reeds, its vertical posture blends well with aquatic vegetation. This Cinnamon Bittern is a very secretive creature and prefers sitting in water pools fully enclosed by Marsh reeds on all sides, and one has to cautiously wedge through the vegetation to find one while often scaring it away to the next pool... ___________________________ Cinnamon Bittern March 2016 Chennai #birding #wingedwonders #bittern #waterbirds #waders #birdlife #birdwatching #birdsofinstagram #animalbehaviour #presence #habitats #savewetlands #heron #throwback #morningwalk #monsoon #dawn #marshland

Here’s another from a series of cards that I painted in 1987 published by the Royal Australasian Ornithologists Union now part of BirdLife Australia.

Come on Mum - just let me at him!!!
Hey take my picture! 💙 #pelicans #keywest #waterbirds
Bittern standing on the ice at the London Wetland Centre. These secretive birds are usually quite difficult to spot as they are perfectly camouflaged when hiding in the reeds. They breed in deep coastal reed beds but some like to overwinter in warmer climes, in this case London! #wwt #londonwetlandcentre #rspb_love_nature #bbcwinterwatch #bittern #kings_birds #your_best_birds #nuts_about_birds #pocket_birds #birdsofinstagram #birdstagram #bird #bird_brilliance #birdlife #birdwatching #best_bird_shots #feather_perfection #naturephotography #natureshots #waterbirds #heron #winter #nikonp900
When I flipped this photo upside down and put my thumb across the neck, the head and the beak of the #BlackHeadedIbis, I saw a #butterfly in flight. Why I did this is something I don't ever want to figure out. #BlackHeadedIbis #waterbirds #nuts_about_birds #bird_brilliance #birds #birdsofinstagram #birdphotography #birdstagram #birding #birds🐦 #birdsofindiansubcontinent #birdsofindia #photography #photo #photos #naturephotography #Chennai #chennaidiaries #southindia #incredibleindia
